and then, steve did it, again

Okay, so this is the story so far. I ordered a new MacBook (aka BlackBook) which is supposed to be arriving today. However Apple announced the updated MacBooks today. The one I ordered is the 2.2GHz Intel Dual Core one which has just been upgraded to a 2.4GHz Intel (Penryn) Dual Core.



What should I do?

In other news but similar news, I tried changing my MSN Messenger nickname to “I hate you, Steve Jobs” and to my surprise got an error message saying that my chosen nickname was not allowed! Now I am royally pissed off!

  1. From what I’ve been reading people have contacted Apple and they are switching them for free. But the more I think about it, the more I think it’s not worth it. They only sell them with 1GB of RAM or higher meaning I’ll have to pay for 1GB of RAM in Apple price (too expensive) when I don’t need to, the Apple Remote is now an add on, they don’t offer better screens or even a multitouch pad, the 250GB hard drive is still 5400rpm (and the only option).

    One thing I’d like to find out is if the new processor is actually that much better than the old one. The speed bump is very small unless they are using some new technology (or whatever) which makes it A LOT faster.


  2. From what i’ve seen, unless they give you an upgraded hard drive (i.e. more space or speed) or more ram, it’s not worth it. the difference between 2.2 and 2.4 is pretty negligible. I mean, so you can play chess that much faster. Not worth it IMHO
